Do you wonder how GLT chooses which plays to produce during its season?

A dedicated group of volunteers on GLT’s Play Selection Committee steward an application process during the winter and spring each year.

Instructions for play submissions
Directors who are interested in submitting a show for the next season’s playbill should do so on or before November 15th.

** Deadline for 2019: All submissions must physically be in the building by 11:59 pm on Sunday, November 24, 2019.**

A complete script (up to a maximum of three plays) should be delivered to:

Play Selection
Guelph Little Theatre,
176 Morris St.,
Guelph, Ont.,
N1H 5M7

If the play is a new or unfamiliar one, please also confirm that it will be available for amateur theatre productions. Directors must have worked with GLT before (i.e. directed a one-act or full-length play) or be a guest director (i.e. be well-established in another community theatre). If you would like to take advantage of our guest director program, please also include a brief resume describing your directing credits, including dates, play titles and theatre where the work was performed.

For more information please email our Chair of the Play Selection Committee.

Had some directing experience but don’t feel ready to take on a full-length production?
